Mango bay is an unpretentious beach resort along the west coast of Phu Quoc, with a particularly laid back feel. Rustic and down to earth, the resort prides itself on being very environmentally friendly, taking numerous measures to stay green and play its part in protecting the beautiful natural surroundings.
There are 44 rooms, all set back from the beach in lush, uncultivated surroundings. They’re well spread out about eight to twelve meters from one another, offering both space and privacy. Features common to all rooms include banana leaf roofs, outdoor showers, four poster beds with mosquito nets, shuttered windows and a private veranda. There’s no air conditioning, but a fan is provided to help with air circulation. Note that there are no televisions but there's plenty to do in and around the resort.
Due to its beach side location, the Mango Bay offers an abundance of outdoor activities. Guests can explore the waters of the Gulf of Thailand by going on snorkeling or scuba diving expeditions to nearby islands arranged in partnership with the local Flipper Diving Club. Other water-based activities include paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing, while on the beach there’s beach ball, volleyball and badminton; equipment for all these activities provided free of charge from the activity center. Bicycles can also be hired at no extra costs to explore the surrounding area. Duong Dong, the main town on Phu Quoc, is about 25 minutes away. It's a vibrant and lively coastal town with many attractions such as its fine beaches, extensive markets and well preserved temples. There's also an on-site spa with a wide range of treatments, and this is where the resort’s Tai Chi and yoga classes take place.
The restaurant is open to everyone and has gained an excellent reputation thanks to the high quality of its Vietnamese-style seafood dishes and Thai cuisine. Though it specialises in seafood, it has plenty of other available options, including vegetarian choices. The outdoor seating area is especially pleasant in the late afternoon and early evening thanks to the stunning sunset views. For international dishes and cocktails there’s the Beach Bar, which has a more relaxed and casual atmosphere.
Children are welcome to stay at the resort. Families are advised to book the superior sea view family bungalow, which has plenty of space and can comfortably accommodate up to four people. Parents are reminded to keep an eye on their youngsters at all times. Mango Bay is a very relaxed down key resort so there are no kids clubs or formal kids facilities, but the sea is shallow, sandy and warm. Children under 5 stay for free, and extra beds and baby cots can be provided.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
